Depending on your needs, the Hilton Head Island Marriott has several terrific room choices that all deserve mention. Corner King rooms give the closest views of the ocean with an extended sitting area. Island King Suites render a pleasant view of the resort from the main building. Firework shows during the summer can be seen from their balconies. Floors 8-10 of the main tower are home to the Executive Suites with full views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Up-scale Vice Presidential Suites also look out over the beach and ocean from dual balconies. Their parlor area measures an elaborate 42 x 17 feet and the dining table seats up to eight people. Finally, at the top of the list is the Presidential Suite which is, of course, the largest of all the rooms. It is located on the 5th floor of the hotel’s South Wing. Just the parlor is about the size of three regular guestrooms. This luxurious room has it’s own private sauna and jacuzzi, a full size refrigerator, wet bar and microwave, along with multiple terraces.
Marriott has also created quite a selection of dining choices within their resort. The Cafe at the Hilton Head Marriott is a great casual place to begin the day with breakfast or to enjoy a light lunch. Ocean Blu supplies a casual outdoor oceanfront location for stimulating afternoon fare and tropical drinks. Conroy’s is the newly renovated fine dining restaurant at the resort, named after the author Pat Conroy. Under the direction of a Sous Chef, they prepare spectacular steaks, crab cakes to die for and many other wonderful selections. The Lounge is located next to Conroy’s where guests relax and partake of their favorites beer, wine or mixed drinks. And we cannot forget the appropriately named Liquid. Whether the name comes from being positioned next to the cool liquid waters of the pool, or from the great selection of tropical drinks they offer, guests are appreciative of the opportunity for a refreshing snack or drink as they enjoy watching the flat screen TV’s.
